A soccer mom becomes a dominatrix and strangles a celebrity sexologist – all for the love of literature.
Mistress Rose is her dominatrix name, at home she is just a mom and a wife. In her past… she has no past. From sugar cookies and private schools in a Silicon Valley idyll, to vinyl and stilettos in the underbelly of San Francisco; taunted by KGB specters from a cold-war Ukraine with its chestnut-tree-lined boulevards, bleeding cherries, and pungent scents; addicted to a double life—Rose is living through writing and writing through living. But when a dungeon client threatens to topple her elegantly orchestrated lies, Mistress Rose unleashes her inner monster.
